REPORTS on social media of anti-abortion protestors demonstrating outside a sexual health clinic in Glasgow have emerged.

Photos posted on Twitter show two men standing outside the Sandyford clinic holding placards.

One reads: "Abortion is murder. Thou shalt not murder"

While another says: "Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners."

The reports appeared on social media today but it is not known when the incident took place. 

A series of video clips shared by pro-choice activist group Back Off Scotland show the men outside the clinic wearing microphones and shouting while a police van is parked behind them. 

Back Off Scotland tweeted: "Sandyford Clinic, Glasgow right now. Police have been and say they can't move them on."


The group claimed that a member of staff had told them that the demonstration was so loud that they could not consult and that patients were in distress.

Comedian Janey Godley retweeted one of the videos and wrote: "Lots of men arguing LOUDLY about the gates of hell as women try to get rape counselling at the Sandyford Clinic in Glasgow."


Back Off Scotland is currently campaigning for the implementation of buffer zones of 150 metres around clinics that provide abortion services or advice in Scotland. 

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 1.55pm on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, officers attended following reports of a protest on Sandyford Place in Glasgow.

"Some of the group has dispersed and officers remain at the scene.

“Police Scotland is a rights-based organisation that puts our values of integrity, fairness, respect and a commitment to upholding human rights at the heart of everything we do.

“We have a duty under the European Convention on Human Rights to protect the rights of people who wish to peacefully protest or counter-protest balanced against the rights of the wider community.”
